WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Merchant of Venice is an uncompromising tale of greed and revenge. When Bassanio falls in love with the wealthy Portia, he becomes imprisoned in a bargain with a ruthless moneylender. A pound of flesh is sought, and time is fast running out to untangle the trap of his own making.
This pocket-sized version of the critically acclaimed 2009 production brings one of Shakespeare's darkest comedies to life in the way only Propeller can. Under the direction of Edward hall, Propeller is an all-male company that brings Shakespeare's texts to life with their trademark clear, humorous and enlightening style.
